Dr. Phil Flambas

Dr Phil Flambas was born in Sydney, Australia in 1953. He was a student at Sydney Boys High and attended the University of NSW medical school, graduating as a doctor in 1978. In his early twenties, he went to Sri Lanka for a few months as a medical student, combined with backpacking through India and Nepal. After graduating medicine, Phil worked as a hospital doctor in England to gain extra qualifications to be a country GP back in Australia. During his time away from Australia, he spent several months backpacking in Morocco, Greece, Turkey and Egypt, and seeing the remains of their ancient cultures first-hand.

After returning to Australia and practicing medicine as a country GP for some years, Phil became interested in the commercialisation of new technologies as a change of career. He returned to Sydney and became the Managing Editor of a long-established medical journal. Realising he needed more knowledge to achieve his goals in technology transfer, he left medical publishing and entered full-time study for a Master of Business Administration from the University of NSW, graduating in 1992. Since then, Phil has worked as a hospital administrator, management consultant and equities analyst, supplemented at times with part-time medical work. Due to family commitments, he returned to full-time medical practice for the past ten years. In his spare time, he has been researching and writing about Plato’s Atlantis story for the past six years.

Dr. P. P Flambas is author of Plato’s Caribbean Atlantis , analyzing the Ancient Greek philosopher Plato’s writings about Atlantis. The book is available on Amazon, iBookstore, Google Books, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and many more.

Myths & Legends

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
